“DAHANA is a company that is part of the SOEs Defense Industry holding, DEFEND ID, with dual use technology products, namely commercial and military explosives. In response to the needs of the Indonesian National Armed Forces, DAHANA has succeeded in producing Bomb P-Series, various kinds of defense rockets, and to the latest, successfully conducting test of Counter-Tank Weapons (SLT)," said Mr Yusuf.
Mr Yusuf added that DAHANA is very open to all stakeholders for cooperation in order to strengthen national defense and security, especially with the Subang District Military Command 0605 which is a DAHANA’s stakeholder in Subang Regency.
Meanwhile, Lt. Col. (Inf) Bambang Raditya explained that the visit with his entourage was a directive from the Commander of Provincial Military Command III/Siliwangi, and he hoped that the meeting with DAHANA could see more significant forms of collaboration, especially in terms of information exchange, technology and knowledge, and furthermore, the two parties can start cooperative work in disaster management simulations at DAHANA.
"This simulation will not be just a joint exercise, the output of such simulation will produce a product, namely a new SOP or update of an existing SOP. We have a Nubika unit and an explosives disposal unit that can later be involved in handling disasters," said Commander of Subang District Military Command.
